Linking bookmarks

Hi,

 

I know it is possible to link an image to a bookmark, but is there anything else that we can use to link to a bookmark?

 

For example, I want to use a text box to link to a bookmark but it doesn't look like the function is avaialble for this.

 

Thanks

Re: Linking bookmarks

Hi @afk.

 

Another way is to link it to an image or shape and then on the Title of that image write your text then reduce the size of the visual until you only see the title. the bookmark will work because title is part of the visual.

Re: Linking bookmarks

Workaround: 

 

You can link "Shapes" to bookmarks so create a shape that's over the text box and set background of the shape to 100% clear.

 

I'm assuming the developers will update text box so we can link them to bookmarks in the future...

Re: Linking bookmarks

If the link function is not visable in the Format Image pane, where or how do you enable it?

Re: Linking bookmarks

Hi All:

I am fairly new to Power BI.  I have a report that have two bookmarks. My problem is I have an image that  I want to link to the bookmark but when I click on the image and look in the Format Image section there is no "Link" visable which doesn't allow to link the image to the bookmark.  

I am using Power BI Desktop, and the bookmarks work if I click on each of them but doesn't work when I click on the image.  Can anyone tell me how to enable the link fuction so I can link it to the bookmark.

 

Thanks, for the help,

Re: Linking bookmarks

Hi @datadog,

 

You need to go the format image options and select the Action option then Bookmark and select the one you need. By default this option is off.

Re: Linking bookmarks

MFelix:  Thank you so much for your quick reply and I aplogize for not being clear but it is hard to explain when I am still figuring things out.

What I am really trying to do is to link my image to the bookmark so that when I click on the image it will toogle between two pages.  What I have read is that you need to link the image to the bookmark but I don't seem to have the ability to turn on the Link Function like the Action function.  From what I have found this Link Function should be right under the "Action" function but for some reason my BI Desktop verison doesn't have it and I am not sure how to find this Link function so that I can make this work in my report.  I have enclosed a picture showing that I don't have the Link funtion.

 

Thank you for your help,

Hi @datadog,

 

This image is from your file? What version of PBI do you have?

Re: Linking bookmarks

The version is: 2.59.5135.421 64bit (June 2018)  I was thinking that too so I updated my free PBIDesktop
